Dubuque man gets 2 years for arson outside store

A 46-year-old Dubuque man accused of setting a gas pump ablaze outside a convenience store has been given two years in prison.

Richard Huffman was sentenced on Tuesday.  Huffman pleaded guilty to a lesser arson charge after making a deal with prosecutors. The judge suspended a $625 fine.

Witnesses say that in December, Hoffman removed a nozzle from a pump at the store, sprayed fuel on the pump and set it aflame.  Police say Huffman reported that he set the fire because the Earth has "too much pollution."  Police also say Huffman was at the police station hours earlier asking to be arrested and admitted to the psychiatric ward at Mercy Medical Center-Dubuque.
